I need to repair the support under the crawl space. I was told ny a home inspector that it would need to be repaired before I could sell the house. I have a photo below. I figured I could just build a frame and pour in cement. The only thing is that it would have to be angled as it won't clear the sewage pipe. Whats the easier way you would suggest I repair this, thanks.

Your purposed fix won't work. Note the left edge of the footing is almost directly inline with the joist abutment (1 1/2" bearing is not supported throughout). The block is uncored (broken block is replaced). Also note that an 1 1/2" net gain of the footing toward the sewer line is possible without encroaching on the trench.

Changes: complete R & R. Goal: 1 1/2" minimum bearing supported throughout. Use 10x10x8 or 12x12x8 block to allow for coring after placement; fish plate joist abutment with 1/4" iron plate on either side, though bolted, and extending 12" or more on either side of abutment to allow jacking.
